Hello everyone. This is my 1st attempt at a thread, so please please someone reply.
I am 51 and female. I have smoked for almost 40 years, with hundreds of attempts to stop. I stopped on November 5th and feel I may make it this time. I am so relieved to not be hurting myself any longer.
The money saved is awesome- its not just the 5-6 pounds a packet, its the mints, chocolate, magazines , the flowers and reduced pizzas that I bought alongside them. I am saving a fortune.
I have not kept the money separate and worry that if it is just absorbed into the household, I may get resentful and lose motivation.
I am thinking of having some filler injections on the horrible lines that smoking has left around my mouth. In one way it seems good to use the money to repair the damage, but I worry that I may be swapping 1 poison for another.
What do you think?
